This is a winner in my house! Just be careful not to over bake.. they dry out fast!
Can't count how many batches I've already made! Thanks!

Oh my.. these muffins are perfection! On the inside, they're light and fluffy, and the tops of them are a bit crunchy. They have just the right amount of sweetness. My mom and sister couldn't even think of words to describe how wonderful these muffins are, they just went "Mmmmmmnom!" I used 1 c. of whole wheat flour and 1/2 c. all purpose, so I added an extra 1/4 tsp. of baking soda. I got ten big muffins. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful!! I made this recipe in an 8x8 cake pan, because my husband doesn't care for muffins. It turned out beautifully and the time was the same. I think next time I will add a little orange zest-you know how we Zaars love to tweak everything! Carole in Orlando

mmm... Great Christmas Eve-morning breakfast. I served them with boiled eggs and orange slices. My family realy liked them. I didn't have applesauce or molasses so I used a pealed and chopped apple and dark Karo syrup. But I can't wait to try them with molasses which is much more nutritional. Thanks for sharing! Liz

These were really good muffins, thank you very much Ocean! I made them in to jumbo muffins last night, just a personal preference, and had the first one this morning on my way to work. A wonderful start to the day!

Wow! I had been craving something "gingerbread-y" for a few weeks but didn't want to take the time to roll out cookies. I spotted this easy to throw together muffin recipe and just finished taking them out of the oven. Verdict = fantastic and oh so good! I, too, was able to get ten medium sized muffins from this recipe and really enjoyed the crunchy tops after sprinkling them with sparkling sugar. Will most definitely make these again.

I thought these were okay. Flavor was not as bold as I had hoped, and the consistency was a little off for me. I also had a difficult time removing the muffin from the wrapper. I also added raisins and toasted walnuts.

I loved these muffins, the spices and the amount of sugar in them are just right. I replaced 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat pastry flour and use allspice instead of clove because that is what I have. I did not sprinkle them with sugar before baking but even without the sugar, a crust was formed on the muffin, which gives it a lovely texture.

The first time I made I multiplied by 6, and took a shot in the dark and hoped the kids like them. I am a school cook and I made these for the last day before Christmas Break and they were a hit. The only change made is I didn't have enough molasses, but they still tasted great.
